Dave Crossland News: Chicago This Weekend, Kerrville Soundcheck, and Tickets to BB King's

Greetings beautiful world,



Got some quick news and gigs to tell you about.



First off, I'm playing a couple of cool gigs in Chicago this weekend.  Next weekend in Western Mass, and then a whole mess of great places in various parts of the country next month.





Speaking of which:  BB KING'S in NYC on July 18.



I'm opening for John Waite ("I ain't missin' you/ Since you've been gone away...").  Tickets from the venue are $25 each, but YOU can get 'em for a mere $16 while supplies last if you contact my manager, Mary Pittari, directly at mailto:mary@davecrossland.com



You can also get 'em on eBay (though they take a cut so the best way is from Mary) by going to their site and searching for "Dave Crossland".  You could also try using this link  --  http://cgi.ebay.com/John-Waite-w-special-guest-Dave-Crossland_W0QQitemZ230143342950QQihZ013QQcategoryZ16122QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem



(Thank you to Laurie Laba, eBay Goddess, for her assistance on this one!)



BB's is a swankingly hip venue, and it would be great to have a good crowd there, so come on down and bring everybody you know~





"We came, we saw, we sound-checked..."



In case any of you missed our appearance at the Kerrville Folk Festival a couple weekends ago, well, so did we.  It's a tragic tale, but yours truly flew down to Texas with an awesome band from Boston and became one of only two acts in an 18-day span that got completely rained out.  Hard to believe, but true.  --Everything had gone perfectly, everybody's flights arrived on time, the weather was beautiful, and all the other acts were really late for sound check, so we got to rehearse our entire set on the mainstage in beautiful sunshine --and it was sounding sooooo gooooooood....  Then came the wind, the dust, then rain with thunder and lightning and they had to shut down the stage just before we were to go on.



But hey, something really awesome that doesn't happen is very different from something really horrible that does happen, so it's a lesson in perspective, and we hope to be back there soon.  So stay tuned....





Crazy Love and Music Everywhere,

~Dave
